Philips Sonicare Airfloss Class Action Settlement

A  class action settlement involving Philips Oral Healthcare, Inc. and Philips Electronics North America Corporation (together, “Philips” or Defendants”) was preliminarily approved in the United States District Court for the Southern District of California on July 11, 2013.

If you are a California resident who purchased a new Philips Sonicare AirFloss (“AirFloss”) in California between January 1, 2011 and June 24, 2013 (the “Class Period”) you may be included in this Settlement Class (“Settlement Calass Member”) and your legal rights may be affected by this Settlement.

The lawsuit claims that Philips violated  certain California state laws in the marketing and sale of AirFloss.  Philips denies these claims.  A settlement has been reached, subject to Court approval.  Under the proposed Settlement, Settlement Class Members may be eligible to receive a Voucher that can be used for the purchase of certain Philips and Avent products.  To obtain the Voucher,  you must submit a valid Proof of Claim Form postmarked on or before January 20, 2014.

A Final Approval  Hearing has been scheduled for November 4, 2013 at 10:30 a.m., at  which time the Court will determine whether the proposed Settlment is fair, reasonable and adequate.  Vouchers cannot be distributed to Settlement Class Members until the Court grants final settlement approval and all appeals, if any, have been resolved.
